Personalization

Each customer is unique. So each product.

Our continual monitoring of market requirements and our in bred interest in new technologies have pushed us towards consistent investment in the field of personalising applying the most appropriate techniques on a great number of items of our range and even in small quantities.

Personalising your equipment not only offers you the possibility of advertising yourself but it also offers a simple and useful tracing method on the scene of emergency which in addition permits group and role identification.

Pre-spaced decals

Production of computer designed cut-out or pre-punch cut letters and logos onto adhesive plastic material ( also be reflective) in any colour.

Advantages: sharp borders and bright colours. Reflective film with strong and long lasting adhesion.

Limits: only two or three colours can be used together.

Built In

Different to other ink pressure transfer systems and traditional adhesive labels, this exclusive system produces an external film on the surface of the item, which contains the words or logo. The fusion process creates an indestructible link encapsulating the image in the polymeric matrix. With this method the image will resist to the influence of atmospheric/chemical substances, solvents, UV rays or abrasion.

Advantages: long-lasting and absolutely indestructible personalisation. Colour definition and Pantone chromatism are guaranteed. It is ideal for use on items made of medium and high density polyethylene for an unlimited duration.

Limits: only two or three colours can be used together.

Hot printing

Production of computer designed cut-out or pre-punched letters and logo onto thermo sensitive material ( also reflective) and in any colour. Transfers are used to reproduce letters or graphic applications onto fabric thanks to the heat transferring method. Transfers guarantee to cover even the darkest materials with a precise and long-lasting image that is resistant to washing.

Advantages: sharp borders and possibility to use reflective material. This technique is great the variety of personalisations requested for promotionals and make it possible to apply a different name on every product.

Limits: only two or three colours can be used together.

Silk screen printing

Silk screen printing

The silk screen printing process is quite simple and is based on the concept of the liquid colour filtered in a controlled manner, through a very tightly woven sieve (frame) called 'screen', to the underlying surface, that is directly in contact with the screen.

Advantages: it is one of the most popular techniques. The personalisation can be carried out practically on any type of material (nylon, ABS, cloth, wood, plastic and others) with a good coverage and nice effect on both flat and curved surfaces.

Limits: it is quite difficult to match the various layers of colour and therefore to achieve a rigorously uniform print. Fine details cannot be reproduced.

Tampography

Tampography

Tampography is a more refined method of printing compared to silk screen printing. It makes use of semi-automated machinery, which is precise and quick. This printing method is particularly appropriate in the reproduction of images, even on curved surfaces. It does not require a loom and actually works on a plate system that uses a silicon pad which takes a certain quantity of ink from the plate and transfers it to the surface of the object, a similar system to offset printing.

Advantages: it allows the reproduction of fine details, thin lines and shading. It allows the personalisation of objects of various forms, with flat or curved surfaces.

Limits: the ink used is not strong enough to give a thick covering even though it is bright and long lasting. It is therefore not the best method for vast backgrounds designed to contrast with dark surfaces.

Engraving

Engraving

This procedure involves the use of a micro needle guided by the computer, which engraves the surface of the material, leaving the image required. The micro-needle engraves the item permanently and with exceptional precision. The material of the product determines the colour of the engraving. This system achieves extraordinary results on materials such as crystal, metal and plastic.

Advantages: the final effect of the personalisation is one of the most exclusive and refined. The quality of detail is amazing and the personalisation is virtually indestructible over time. This technique works well for the personalisation of promotionals allowing the addition of a different name on every product.

Limits: printing colours cannot be used and only a few materials / items can be considered for this type of personalisation. It is possible to engrave only flat surfaces or those with small angles.

Injection

Injection

Usually injection moulds are made of a special type of steel which guarantees an exceptional detail of any logo that will remain unchanged in time. The high quality of the finished product is guaranteed by highly specialised experience in different types of material and their uses.

Advantages: monolithic, resistant and absolutely permanent. Exact definition of the logo is obtained on plastic, aluminium, zama. The definition on thermoplastics and rubber is not quite as precise as the previous. It is however a good method for printing on plastics materials, aluminium, rubber silicone and heat sensitive resins.

Limits: colours other than that of the actual item cannot be used and it is ideal for larger production quantities. The cost of the moulds are decisively high and therefore need to be distributed over production of a larger quantity of products. The initial costs will therefore be absorbed over the total number of items produced.

Permaview

Permaview

This is a digital printing onto an adhesive label. It is covered by a layer of epoxy resin, that creates a 'lens effect' above the print.

Advantages: it is ideal for logos that have more than one colour, because it allows up to eight colours to be used without additional costs. The layer of resin protects the colour from natural fading caused by long periods in the sun. It is possible to produce very precise details.

Limits: it is a method that can only be used on certain types of products.

Embroidery

Embroidery

This technique enhances the elegance of the logo: the message is embroidered onto the surface of the object. The embroidery can be carried out on flat or cylindrical surfaces.

Advantages: it is ideal for brands and designs that have more than one colour. It allows the use of up to eight colours without any additional costs. It is particularly recommended for hats, tops, jumpers, bags, rucksacks and tapes. With technique promotionals can be personalised with a difference name on every product.

Limits: this method of personalisation can only be used on fabric. Intricate details backgrounds or excessively elaborate designs cannot be reproduced.

Vacuum

Vacuum

The clamps used for vacuum moulding of metacrylic sheets, polypropylene, PVC, PST and ABS offer great stability also for the impressed logo. It is used where structural consistency together with lightweight, is required.

Advantages: indestructible personalisation for high level communication. It can be used for medium size production quantities using moulds made of wood or resin. The initial cost of the mould will be covered over time.

Limits: colours cannot be used so in conditions of poor light the logo cannot be distinguished. While the technology behind this type of production is being continually improved, the definition of the logo, which must have simple outlines, is low.
